USA, Dallas, Texas. August 20, 2019

Aimbridge Hospitality, the nation's largest independent hotel management company, is heating up its international portfolio with the addition of six Caribbean resorts.

The new Caribbean resorts now under Aimbridge Hospitality management include:

  • Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort & Emerald Casino, Curaçao: After undergoing a complete rebuild, the property is set to reopen in fall 2019.
  • Grand Hyatt Grand Cayman Hotel & Residence, Cayman Islands: The resort will break ground by year end 2019 and set to open Fall 2021.
  • Margaritaville Beach Resort at The Pointe, Nassau, Bahamas: This new build resort is set to open in June 2020.
  • Hyatt Regency Coco Beach, Puerto Rico: The beachside family-friendly resort reopened in August 2019.
  • Marriott Frenchman's Reef, St. Thomas: One of two St. Thomas properties in Aimbridge's portfolio, the resort is currently undergoing construction and set to open in Spring 2020.
  • Autograph Collection Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort, St. Thomas: Adjacent to Marriott Frenchman's Reef, this resort is currently undergoing construction and anticipates opening in Spring 2020.

Aimbridge-managed luxury resort Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Resort & Spa is also undergoing renovations and is set to open in Spring 2020.

"The acquisition of these resorts is a great expansion for our Caribbean portfolio," said Dave Johnson, Chairman and CEO at Aimbridge Hospitality. "The devastation from the 2017 hurricanes has produced a tremendous opportunity as newly renovated and revamped assets look to relaunch and reposition back into the marketplace."

With the acquisition of these properties, Aimbridge Hospitality now represents nine resorts on eight Caribbean islands with immediate plans to continue expanding. Aimbridge Hospitality is also planning to add an additional 10-12 Caribbean resorts in the pipeline for 2019 and 2020.

Revenue Management: Focus On Profit

Revenue Management is still a relatively new profession within hotel operations and as such, it continues to evolve. One significant trend in this area is a shift away from using revenue as the foundation to generate key performance indicators (KPIs) and to instead place the emphasis on profit. Traditionally, revenue managers have relied on total revenue per available room (TrevPAR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) as the basis of their KPIs. Now, some revenue managers are using gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR) as their primary KPI. This puts profit at the center of revenue management strategy, and managers are increasingly searching for new ways to increase the profitability of their hotels. Return on Investment is the objective of any hotel investment, so it is only logical that profitability and ROI will be emphasized going forward. Another trend is an expanded focus on direct hotel bookings. Revenue managers know that one way to increase profitability is to steer guests away from online travel agencies (OTAs) and book directly with the hotel. This tactic also reinforces brand identity and loyalty, and encourages repeat business. In addition, it provides a valuable platform to market the hotel directly to the customer, and to upsell room upgrades or other services to them. Another trend for revenue managers involves automation in their software programs. Revenue management systems with automation are far more desirable than those without it. Automating data entry and logistics increases efficiency, allowing managers to spend more time on formulating strategy. As a bonus, an automated system helps with aggregating and interpreting data. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address these developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
